Candy Club is a candy subscription that sends 2-3 pounds of premier brand name candy to you each month. Each delivery contains 4 different types of candy which you can choose yourself or leave as a surprise.
You’ll receive 4 different types of candy each month. 3 will arrive in cups and the fourth will be loose candy in the box.
They no longer offer the option of selecting sweets, sours, or sweets + sours – instead, you’ll take a short quiz to decide what types of candies you’d like to receive each month.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

There is a small envelope inside that holds cards that lists out each treat you've received with their nutrition facts on the back. Candy Club seemed to forget two of mine, which were nowhere to be found. 🙁
The next info card I have wishes me a happy Independence Day for the month of July. They went all out with the box this month! Sp patriotic!
Next is a card mentioning that you can now send a box of sweets to a friend or loved one for a special occasion, or just 'cause.
Atkinson's Red White and Blue Mints
Speaking of the Fourth of July, the loose candies they've included this month scream with U.S.A. pride while making my breath minty fresh. My mom really hates peppermint, but I'm a fan. These are nice big hunks of hard, yet kinda chewy candies that I can chomp in the morning so I don't offend anyone with my coffee breath.
Vidal Mini Gummy Orange & Lemon Slices
These are soft, yummy citrus gummies coated in sugar. It seems I've been getting all sorts of citrus snacks and fruity items for summer, so these fit in with the rest of the crew.
Arway Chocolate Toffee Peanuts
These are the pièce de résistance. Toffee is one of my favorite things to combine with chocolate (and let's be honest, nuts too). Even though I thought I might crack a tooth on these, it's well worth it savor the peanut coated in toffee, then coated in chocolate, and lightly dusted to make them look FANCY.
Dorval Sour Power Green Apple Belts
I like sour gummies but HOLY COW these are the most sour candy I've ever had! I can probably only eat one of these foot-long belts per day, so I will certainly have to share with my friends. You have to wait until the sour stops assaulting your tongue before noticing the green apple flavor.
Verdict: This is my first run-in with Candy Club and even though I got up to 3 lbs. of candy, I'm not sure if this is the subscription box for me. The total cost for this comes to $33.99 ($27.99 + $6 shipping), which makes it around $11 per pound. My local bulk candy shop runs about $11.99 per pound for most of their candy and $18.99 for some fancier stuff. I think my issue is that here I only get four kinds of candy, whereas if I go to a shop, I can get a mix of unlimited kinds. I'm not sure about this one. I can see it being worth it if you get chocolates only, perhaps?
What do you think? Does Candy Club have the value for you?
